Have you ever seen people that have enough time to do it all. They work, they do sports, they have friends, have a relationship, go to parties, are part of school clubs, travel, do competitions, all while maintaining good grades.
I have good self-control when it comes to flopping on people, or events so I can “study”. I may actually allocate all my time to studying, but I still am not a stellar student. The steps I took to stop wasting time are as follows:
- I’ve stopped gaming, especially RPGs (which were my favorite)

My New Tactic for Being More Time Efficient
I’m going to try out this new idea I had. I’m not going to flop on things as much as I usually do. I’m not going to dedicate entire days to studying.

My mom asked me to drive somewhere today, and I’m probably gonna watch a movie with the dudes, maybe I’ll even try to find the Diablo III demo. I would usually say no to my mom, cancel on my friends, and not even consider gaming, but maybe if I do these things, my brain will have to work extra hard since it has a limited amount of time.
Lets see if this works
